new mexico, jeff bingaman, as he retires from a long career of service to our country. for 30 years, senator bingaman has been a dedicated representative of the people of new mexico, but for those -- for 26 of those years, he was a junior senior from new mexico. the only person that i know of that was a junior senator longer than senator bingaman was fritz hollings. he was a junior senator for many, many decades to strom thurmond. but 26 years here in the senate still makes you a fairly senior member. jeff served alongside senator pete domenici, the longest serving senator in new mexico's history, until in 2009 he was the most senior junior senator. still, mr. president, jeff bingaman has never been one to get hung up on titles or credits. if there were ever the conscience of this body, it's jeff bingaman, a man who has been called by others, including by ron dorgan, a -- including byron dorgan, a workhorse. that's really true. for three decades, he has quietly and with dignity fought for the people of new mexico and this country. american industrialist henry kaiser said with this b

honor to serve these past two years, senator jeff bingaman of new mexico, chairman of the energy committee. simply one of the kindest, smartest, gentlest people i've ever met. it's been a great pleasure working with him on the energy and natural resources committee. i remember we were both speaking at a conference on advanced energy research this last year out at national harbor. thousands of scientists, investors and entrepreneurs were there. i pulled up in front of the massive convention hall and right out in front, prius with new mexico plates. sure enough, chairman jeff bingaman jumps out of the driver's seat -- no staff -- so here's the chairman of the senate energy committee, a senator for nearly 30 years, driving himself to a major policy speech in his prius. practicing what he preaches, prepared to deliver an important speech in a moment that showed his humility. as unassuming a man as senator bingaman is, when he speaks, you listen. he's living proof that the value of one's words can and should exceed their volume. that day at national harbor, senator bingaman delivered

, senator jeff bingaman. i think most of the people on his committee feel that he's a good friend. he's been a good friend and mentor to me here in the senate in the years that i've been here, and then also when i arrived in the house we worked with each other. he's been a very good public servant for new mexico and for the united states. and he truly can wear that united states senator proudly. my dad always used to remind me, he used to say -- he said don't forget. you go to represent new mexico, but he says you're a united states senator. and jeff bingaman has worn that title, i think, very, very proudly. jeff is a rare combination of character: brilliant and humble. for jeff, it's about the work. not about his own ego, not about a monument to himself. for three decades in the u.s. senate, he has been making a difference for the american people and for our home state of new mexico. public service is a noble profession when it isn't swamped by money and when it isn't held hostage to partisanship, and jeff is the best example i know of of nobility and politics. by washington stan

representatives before that. now it's time to move on. my successor, senator-elect jeff flake, is a good and honorable public servant who will work hard on behalf of our great state of arizona. and my colleague, john mccain, will continue his long and dedicated public service as well. i appreciate the remarks he delivered here yesterday. i want to say thank you to my colleagues for your friendship. it's been a privilege working with so many of you on both sides of the aisle. while it's true that washington would benefit from more civility, the senate behind the scenes is an extraordinarily collegial institution. and i will certainly miss that aspect of the job. i also want to thank my staff, past and present, for working so many long hours, and for spending so much time analyzing the issues that will determine america's future. mr. president, farewell speeches offer the opportunity to reminisce about the past. i don't believe that would be the best use of your time or mine. instead, i'm going to comment on some of the biggest public policy changes america faces and recommend princip

senator domenici of new mexico. and i do want to say that we're really going to miss senator jeff bingaman, our chairman on that energy committee. he has done a remarkable job at putting clean energy front and center of our agenda. and then this tax credit was most recently extended in 2009 as part of president obama's recovery act. so renewable energy has enjoyed long-standing bipartisan support, and the wind tax credit has been a great success. the cost of wind power has fallen dramatically as the presiding officer knows, it has fallen dramatically over the years. for example, general -- g.e.'s wind power costs have dropped from 15 cents per kill a watt-hour to near five cents in the last ten years. wind is becoming cost competitive with fossil fuels. on some days, it's the cheapest electricity available. let me just repeat that because that's important, because we hear arguments out there that, oh, this is expensive, but on some days, it is the cheapest electricity available. the department of energy estimates we could receive 20% of our electric power from wind alone by 2030, but we ne

proposal on the scale that he's talked about. jeff? >> the speaker's comments today indicate that in spite of his meeting with the president on monday here at the white house, that very little progress has been made. does the white house share that assessment? >> i don't think that's what he said. the discussions have been cordial. we would agree with that, and i think that lines of communications remain open. but what we are not going to do is give a daily or an elderly assessment of whether or not the congress is being made or whether what specific items are being discussed because we don't think that is fruitful or helpful towards achieving the goal that we think we share which is reaching a compromise that congress can pass and the president can sign into law. >> [inaudible] >> i don't think it is helpful to give hourly or daily read-outs of progress because our interest is in achieving a workable compromise that reflect the principles the president has talked about so clearly and has put forward before the american people for so long when it comes to having balance and making su

again one of our most popular and respected members, senator jeff bingaman of new mexico. when jeff came to this body 30 years ago, he had already led a life of accomplishment created in small-town new mexico, silver city. he was an eagle scout, graduated from harvard college, stanford law school, where he met his future wife, ann. while at stanford, he worked in senator robert f. kennedy's campaign for president. at the age of 35, he was elected new mexico attorney general in 1978. and four years later at the age of 39, elected to the united states senate. during his three decades in this body, jeff bingaman has been a classic workhorse senator as opposed to being a show horse senator. he is truly remarkable and distinctive among senators for his willingness to shun the limelight and share the credit in order to get important things done for his state and for this country. senator bingaman has been a much valued colleague of mine on the health, education, labor and pensions committee, but he has really made his mark in the senate a lasting mark in his role as chair of the energy an

bipartisan amendment that's been offered by senators jeff merkley and mike lee. the foreign intelligence surveillance act as interpreted by a secret court known as the foreign intelligence surveillance court. the merkley-lee amendment would require that significant legal interpretations of fisa by the secret court be declassified. the concept of secret law is anathema to a democracy. the american people have the right to know how laws passed by their elected representatives are interpreted and implemented. i thant want to thank senators merkley and lee for taking up this cause. in 2003 i worked on a provision in the 9/11 intelligence reform bill that would have required the declassification of significant legal interpretations by the fisa court. unfortunately, that provision was removed from the final bill at the insistence of the bush administration. former senator russ feingold, my predecessor as chairman of the constitution subcommittee was also an outspoken advocate of declassifying fisa court opinions and back in 2008 he held a hearing on the problem of secret law. this is an import
